Former Chief Master wins Lifetime Achievement Award
In 2006, John Claughton became chief master of King Edward’s School, Birmingham, where he was a pupil in the 1970s. During his tenure he has made a long-lasting impact on both the school and education in the region. His commitment to accessibility has made the school the most socially and ethnically diverse independent school in the country. It has completed one of the largest-ever bursary fundraising campaigns and raised £10 million to fund 100 additional assisted places, trebling the amount available each year before his arrival.
John Claughton retired in the summer of 2016 and Dr. Mark Fenton is the new Chief Master at King Edward’s School.
